Artist Statement: The wall art prints in the Black and White Sketches Gallery are a compilation of my creations.
This gallery of sketched art prints covers the gambit from rural scenes to urban scenes using landscapes and architectural elements. The collection is a series of wall art prints that I believe work well in a black and white monochrome presentation. Not all pictures work in this limited color environment. For an appealing black and white, the subject sketch must possess good contrast and depth. Since you are eliminating color to tell a story, the subtle shades of gray must relay the look and feel you are trying to present. In these sketches, there is usually an abundance of either clean lines to create the contrast or subtle shadings of gray as in the landscape scenes to create the look. You see a lot of intricacies with the shading that you might not notice with color.
Using this type of art print works in almost any interior design with the framing and matting kept clean and simple. I invite you to share in my love of art and take some home for your own Wall Gallery! Kirt Tisdale
